What a beautiful day for running!!!!

Took hubby and the kids to Strathfield for the second race in the West Met XC season. Nice to meet you Blue’s Buffet!!! 🙂

4km today. I knew I had to run smarter or I would conk out in the end. I forgot my watch so I have no idea what my km splits were… but you know I am thinking this is a good thing because I felt relaxed and I just ran!
The first km seemed to take forever to get to!!!
At the 2km turnaround there was a girl in front of me – about 50m and I thought ‘I can catch her’ (my competitive side coming out!) and by the 3km mark I had caught her and we tusseled it out all the way to the end. It was great having someone to run against!
So I finished in around 20.53mins. Quicker then I was anticipating – average of 5.15min km’s. The best part was I didnt feel like I was going to die at the end!! I really enjoyed myself today!

Long run tomorrow – only 6.4km – I know, I know, not very ‘long’ but I am sticking to the Hal program and thats all I have to do!

Have a good one and happy trails!!! 🙂 🙂
